Assignment of a Bachelor Thesis

In order to avoid bottlenecks when allocating Bachelor's theses, the Examination Office centrally records the student preferences for the choice of Bachelor's thesis for each year. All students in the B.Sc. degree programmes who are in their fourth or higher semester in the summer semester 2019 and have not yet written a Bachelor's thesis receive a letter asking them to complete a form for their Bachelor's thesis choices. We will evaluate your answers and inform you of the result. We can only assign you a Bachelor thesis if you send us the questionnaire by july 14, 2019 at the latest. Please note that you can only be admitted to the bachelor thesis as soon as your achievements have been completed up to and including the third semester according to the study plan (new examination regulations). In a further step, we will forward your details to the individual chairs for the assignment of topics. There you have to register before the end of the previous semester.
